Animals and children seem like they have a special bond and with the help of American Humane’s TASK (Therapy Animals Supporting Kids) that vision is a reality. Particularly helpful to children who have been brutalized by the hands of others or who have witnessed violence, these specially trained animals provide unconditional love, support, and promote healing to the traumatized youngsters. Designed for childcare professionals, social workers, and attorneys, the therapy animals aid these adults to communicate to the kids who have been harmed and try to make them feel secure.
